Pugad Baboy History

Medina conceived the strip while working under contract in Iraq in 1986. In 1988, he peddled his strips to the Philippine Daily Inquirer. His strip, named after a friend's piggery in Bulacan, was accepted on the spot.

Medina originally spelled "Pugad Baboy" with a hyphen in the strip itself, though not in the title.

For many years, the newspaper strip was exclusively a black and white daily. A full-color Sunday strip in the same paper debuted on October 3, 2004. Before the tabloid Inquirer Libre debuted, the strip appeared exclusively in the Inquirer broadsheet.

In a strip published in September 2006, Medina commented on online life substituting for physical contact. He mentioned Wikipedia as one of the alternatives to library visits, the other being Google.
